ROBERT VAN CAMP RICHARD DOUGLAS PAUL BRADY
"Sammy," playing his second year
on the W. L. varsity, was one of the
Devil's trickiest forwards. Although
his magician-like passing and drib-
bling gained most of the attention,
Bob was extremely accurate for the
floor and a very reliable defensive
"Stoop," new to W. L. this year,
formerly of New Albany, was the
Scarlet's most dangerous threat this
season. Laverne was the key man
to the team's spirit and "pepper."
Marsh's six foot, three inches were
very essential to the Devil attack.
It can be noticed that four of the
West Side defeats were suffered
when "Stoop" was out of action due
to ill health.
"Horsey," closing his third year
as Red Devil co-captain, was high
scorer in the Scarlet lineup. On the
hardwood, Riley is most dangerous
from the foul line. Teamed with
"Big Stoop," he gave the West Sid-
er's a very potent scoring duo. The
loss of Riley will present W. L. with
quite a vacancy in athletics.
l'AU H F1 DIRTY-SIX
"Doug," co-captain of the West
Sider's, was the only starter under
the six foot mark. He makes up for
his small stature in his demon-like
speed, dribbling, "pepper" and ac-
curacy on long shots. Dick was one
of the best of the defensive men on
the Devil team.
"Dutch," the unsung hero of the
Devil roster, proved himself a de-
mon on defense. He made one of
the most reliable players on the
squad, by hard work at practice ses-
ion. What Riley and L. Marsh
are to the offense-"Dutch" is to
defense. Quiet in voice, Gene pre-
serves all his spirits for the games,
where he really puts forth.
WILLIAM VAN CAMP
"Bill," redheaded cousin to Bob,
is one of the most accurate shooters
on the Devil brigade. Bill kept the
"pepper" up on the bench while the
regulars were in action. I-Ie proved
his worth as a very reliable relief
man early in the season.
Paul, ending his basketball career
this season, was one of the boys who
rendered the West Side team much
service during the season. His as-
sistance to the regulars proved quite
helpful, at times, to the Devils. The
Scarlet's found Paul's eye quite an
advantageous factor in their victory
"Ned," accompanying his big
brother, Laveme, out of the "Deep
South," has shown that he is one of
the best defensive netters in the
game. "Pawnee" will return next
year to "slay 'em" with his threats
for good old W. L.
"Dufe," playing his second year
as a reserve, is registered as one of
the best guards ever to land at West
Side. "Dufe" is sure to prove one of
the main cogs of the 1939-40 model
of the W. L. H. S. basketball ma-
"Bill," with his advantageous six
feet, is known as a defensive threat
for the West Siders. It is certain
that Bill will also be one of the
"Guns" of next year's team.

RED DEVILS WIN
OPENER BY 33-28
Lafayette, Nov. 30.
The 1938-39 model of the Red
Devil hardwood machine looked like a
fairly well oiled mechanism, while
they defeated the Remington quintet
with little difiiculty, 33 to 28. Prom-
ising offensive ability was shown by
the Marsh brothers, Bob Riley and
Bob Van Camp, although defensive
play was a little weak during nearly
the entire fray.
West Side jumped into the lead with
the first whistle and led throughout the
entire game. The Scarlets held a 17
to 7 advantage at the half and were
threatened only by a ten point rally
in the third quarter that dwindled an
eleven point lead to a three point mar-
Scoring honors went to Riley, who
netted 14 points, while Bob Van Camp
and Carlton Marsh annexed ten.
Lafayette, Dec. 2.
Improved passing and defensive
play gave the West Siders an easy vic-
tory over Morocco's hardwood five, 43
to 27. The scoring was well distributed
with the Marsh brothers accounting
for eighteen points, while Riley and
Bob Van Camp tossed in nine and six,
respectively. Hill, Douglas and Friend
played effective defensive games for
the Red Devils, while Brady and Bill
Van Camp both added to the relief
W. L. FIVE COPS
I THIRD DECISION
Lafayette, Dec. 6.
The Wolcott five threw a sufficient
scare into the West Side camp before
the Dailey charges nosed them out,
32 to 27. The West Siders didn't take
the lead until the second quarter and
it was a see-saw battle from then on
with the Devils taking their final ad-
vantage with only five minutes re-
maining. L. Marsh's twelve points,
combined with Riley's nine, made the
larger part of the West Side score.
while the rest of the Scarlets aided
greatly with effective passing and
The West Side Red Devils, greatly
hindered without the services of

behind in the last quarter to take the

decision, 36 to 29.
The Scarlets, led by Bob Riley, who
got 14 points, went into the lead at
the beginning of the fray and held an
eighteen to fifteen advantage at the
intermission. This lead was overcome
in the final stanza when a final Tiger
drive enabled them to be the first to
mar Coach Dailey's excellent record.
RED VS. GREEN
AS DEVILS WIN
Veedersburg, Dec. 14.
Following the theme song, "The
Devil With the Devil Says Us," the
Scarlets downed the Veedersburg
Green Devils, 27-24 in a game that
was made close only by the Veeders-
burg rally in the closing minutes.
The Red Devils, led by Douglas and
Brady, who each grabbed eight points,
led throughout the whole game, hold-
ing a 25 to 16 halftime advantage,
which dwindled under the pressure of
the final Green Devil drive.
Lafayette, Dec. 16.
The Red Devils made their return-
ing home, after two games away, a suc-
cess by handing the George Rogers
Clark Pioneers a 40 to 25 set back,
after holding a 17-7 halftime advan-
Riley led the Scarlets with 22 points
while Brady and Bob Van Camp added
eleven to the total. Douglas and Col-
lins played fine ball in their guard po-
sitions on the defensive side, while
boosting the score often.
SCARLETS. 25 TO 23
Lafayette, Dec. 21.
Poor shooting luck during the first
half and radical passing throughout the
fray were responsible for the second
Scarlet defeat. The Red Devils, who
only chalked up two field goals in the
half, were victims of a 17-7 disadvan-
tage at the intermission and the sec-
ond half rally fell two points short to
give the Rensselaer five a 25 to 23
The Bombers went into an eleven
to nothing lead before L. Marsh broke
the ice for the Devils just as the first
period ended. The Scarlet's final drive
came in the last stanza when they out-
scored the Rensselaer quintet nine
points to two. "Nonnie" Marsh led the
West Siders with eleven points, while
Riley added six.
RED DEVILS DOWN
Lafayette, Dec. 31.
The Scarlet and Gray quintet cli-
maxed the old year with a 39-21 vic-
tory over the Gerstmeyer fTerre
Haute! live, after leading only 16 to
14 at halftime and 24 to 19 at the end
of the third period. The Devils' last
quarter drive netted them a 37 to 19
advantage before the Tech five was
able to score.
Riley's 14 points combined with C.
Marsh's 19 made up the larger part of
the Scarlet score, while effective de-
fensive games were played by Collins,
Douglas and Friend.
BY RED DEVILS! Z5-IT
Lafayette, jan. 4.
The West Siders took a one game
advantage over the jeff Bronchos for
the 1938-39 athletic season by hand-
ing them a 25-17 setback with reserves
playing the entire final quarter. 13-5,
17-7 were the advantages at the end of
the quarters. The scoring for the Red
Devils was evenly distributed with L.
Marsh and Riley getting 5 points a
piece, while "Sammy" Van Camp
grabbed four. The Scarlet and Gray
defensive department, led by Dick
Douglas, who held Jim Pechin to no
score, played what was probably the
best game thus far in the season.

DOWNS WEST SIDERS
Brazil, jan. 6.
Playing against the southem brand
of slow basketball and slower officials,
the Scarlet and Gray colors faded into
pink and white under the pressure of
a 24-22 setback at the hands of the
Brazil Blue Devils. After leading 19
to 15 at the beginning of the final
period the Scarlets fell behind with
three minutes remaining in the fray.
Paul Brady led the losers with
eleven points, while the remainder of
the scoring was evenly distributed.

fectively in the first and third quarters,

field goal each period. but crumbled in
the second and fourth stanzas.

of the ledger: and was out-scored in

Delphi, jan. 13.
Scoring half the points, "Stoop"
Marsh led the West Siders to 28-26
victory over the Delphi Oracles after
leading 19 to 12 at halftime. Along

tire fray, holding a 11-2 advantage at
the end of the first period and a 22-15
count at the end of the third stanza.

three games away and downed the Wil-
liamsport Bingies 39 to 34, after lead-

RED DEVILS OUT-ROUGH
FLORA OUINTET, 48-22
Flora, jan. 27.

of football trips they made, the Scar-
let and Gray basketeers made a "foot-
ball" trip to Flora and defeated the
home team 48 to 22, while having 24
personal fouls called on them. While
going down in defeat, the Flora five
managed to get 19 fouls chalked up
against them to make the roughest
game of the season. Riley and Van
Camp left the game on fouls, while
Carlton Marsh, Laverne Marsh, Col-
lins and Friend collected three apiece.
Two of the Flora quintet left the game
via the foul route, while the remainder
of the players got at least two person-

SCARLETS DROPPED BY
WINAMAC, 29 TO 24
Lafayette, Feb. 17.
The absence of the Marsh brothers
and Bob Riley, due to injury, proved
too much for the weakened West Side
quintet, when it was handed its fourth
setback of the season by Winamac,
29-24. The tilt was a see-saw battle
most of the way with the Winamac
five taking their final advantage late
in the third period. The largest ad-
vantage throughout the game was six
points, which the visiting quintet held
when they took their final lead.
Scoring honors for the losers went
to Brady and Collins, who collected
8 and 6, respectively, while no other
Red Devil scored more than two

maining in the fray, the Devils led
27 to 18, when a single handed nine

guard, put the game on an even basis.

in the final minute of play to give the
Red Devils their fifth defeat in
Attica, Feb. 24.
